Hello and welcome to ThreeChannels.

Is it Monday?


Good Enough Mama is my friend.  Why not support her mumber action?  It’s quite fun!

867 Number of miles logged since Thursday’s wedding pilgrimage.

4 Number of Tornadoes dodged yesterday during our attempt at returning home.

3 Number of children who howled during the entire wedding ceremony.

0 Number of howling children who were associated with me.  (Miracles, miracles!  And thanks for your prayers.  They were definitely felt!)

2 Number of times the bride turned around to leer at the sobbing children.

777 number of prayers I prayed during wedding about the potentiality of disruptive children associated with me.

3 Number of promised child-friendly items served at wedding reception.  Below you will find the actual menu.  Please select the most child-friendly choice and let me know what you think it is because I am having a hard time deciding upon, or perhaps simply recognizing, child-friendly fare.  I had to actually “borrow” a can of cling peaches from the pantry and plop them in a plastic cup so Edward would have something GF/CF to eat after the promised french fries and fruit medly “went missing.”  Sue subsisted on M n Ms with the bride and groom’s name imprinted.  Menu: Crackers with kippered herring, cheeze “starling” and hint of dill; sweet rolls with turkeyporkpatty; pounded chicken wrapped with spinach; garlic toast with tomato chutney.  Children flocked, they dined, they embraced the culinary wonder…

0 The number of blogs I have read, or emails I have answered, since Thursday.  I promise to catch up this week!  Please stick with me!

This one cracked me up… well… except for the tornadoes. Yikes!

Sounds like fun. Glad to hear those rowdy children weren’t with you. Did drug them or bribe them?

I’m so glad to hear it wasn’t your kids that caused the bride to turn around and glare (I can’t believe she did that….oh, but one day, it’ll come full circle for her…karma works that way).

Yeah I’m having a hard time too figuring out which of those menu items is considered kid-friendly….certainly not the kippered herring. Although I did develop a fondness to it when I was young, only because my dad ate it all the time while watching football on Sundays.

Where’s the corn dogs and pizza?!

When my boys were 4 and 2 we went to a wedding and spent the whole time in the church’s nursery. We had to be there early for pictures and by the time the wedding started they were tired, hungry and irritable!

I agree with Helene about karma and the bride, though I probably didn’t understand kids before I got married either (not that I do now, but I do know that it is really hard to ensure kids will behave especially during long wedding ceremonies!) Glad your kids were well-behaved.

And the menu? I know many, many adults who wouldn’t eat that food, let alone kids!

I am so thankful all went well
I totally prayed for all of you!
And the menu was not kid friendly – bizarre that it was promised and then “forgotten”
Thank you again for calling yesterday
I feel so much better today
Thank the LORD!
Love ya

Woo hoo on dodging tornadoes and bridal glares. Although in defense of the other sobbing children, weddings can indeed be boring and sob worthy.

What is up with that menu? Is it kid friendly because they misspelled cheeze? Isn’t a starling a bird?

Glad you all made it back okay. You traveled a lot of miles for kippered herring. 😉

Those #’s speak a story all their own. Glad you’re home…relatively no worse for the wear.

You’re right. There’s nothing on that menu that my kids would eat! Well, other than the m&m’s I guess 🙂

Tornadoes? That’s a little scary.

Glad you survived the weekend 🙂

I take it it was a childless couple who were getting married? She leered at them?!

Tornado-dodging, huh? Who knew that could be such a fun hobby? 😉

Kids and weddings – never a felicitous combination. I’m glad yours survived the ceremony without incident, at least.

YIKES at the tornados. Scary!

Wow at the menu. Yeah, doesn’t sound very kid-accommodating to me, either. But I’m glad that your kiddos did well.

I have seen that car insurance businesses know the automobiles which are at risk from accidents as well as other risks. In addition, they know what sort of cars are susceptible to higher risk along with the higher risk they have the higher the actual premium amount. Unitnseanddrg the simple basics associated with car insurance just might help you choose the right style of insurance policy which will take care of your wants in case you become involved in any accident. Thanks for sharing the ideas in your blog.
